Marvel is giving Barack Obama the highest honor in geek land -a cameo in a Spider-Man comic. And not just the “walk-on roles” usually given to most presidents, but as an integral part of the storyline.
In the comic, Peter Parker attends the inauguration and decides “the future president’s gonna need Spider-Man.” When Parker is faced with an Obama imposter he uses basketball to determine the real one and even gets to fist-bump with the President-elect.
Obama is featured on the cover of the bonus issue of Amazing Spider-Man #583 which will be available on January 14.
